Why Get a Nuclear Image?

At AMS Cardiology, we understand the importance of early and accurate diagnosis in the management of heart disease. Nuclear imaging, specifically Cardiac PET/CT, offers several advantages over traditional diagnostic methods:

  • Ability to detect cardiovascular disease before symptoms appear, enabling timely intervention and better patient outcomes.
  • Non-invasive nature, eliminating the risks associated with more invasive procedures like cardiac catheterization.
  • Avoidance of unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures by providing precise and comprehensive cardiac assessments.

Why Is PET/CT a Good Choice?

Cardiac PET/CT is widely recognized as the gold standard in cardiac perfusion imaging, offering unparalleled accuracy and safety. Here’s why it’s an excellent choice:

  • Higher diagnostic accuracy and lower radiation exposure compared to traditional stress testing methods.
  • As stated by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, “There are no clinical scenarios where PET or PET/CT should not be considered a preferred test for patients who meet appropriate criteria for a stress imaging test, specifically those who require pharmacologic stress.”
  • Provides diagnostic-quality images, enabling precise evaluation of heart function and detection of coronary artery disease.
